No One Can Judge Me — Andrew Morton
Dear Presby Family,
Few things draw the ire and judgment of our culture as much as the appearance of judging or looking down upon someone else. To accuse someone of sin, it seems, has become an unpardonable sin in today's world.
How should we, as Christians, respond to this? On the one hand, the Bible warns us against the dangers of pride and judgmentalism. Because the church hasn't always done well in those areas, we need to ask the Lord to show us where we need to repent and do better. On the other hand, obedience to Christ means that, at times, we must take a stand on right, wrong, truth, and falsehood. Often it can feel like it's a constant juggling act to uphold the truth and love of Christ simultaneously.
This Sunday, we will continue our sermon series on ideas that aren't actually in the Bible by examining the cultural notion that "No one can judge me." We'll discuss what the Bible says on the topic and attempt to reclaim a biblical vision of God's love and justice. Because God's love and justice are perfectly shown to us in Jesus Christ, we who are united to Christ can extend the true and just love of Christ to those around us.
